LabTracker: Development of an iPad-based Laboratory Management System

Yasir Ahmad

This project wasinitially tasked to provide a method of managing protocol templates used withina lab environment through a portable tablet device, in order to provide moreefficient and portable access to experimental procedures. The requirements ofthe app evolved over the course of the development, through feedback from userevaluation as well as the limitations or additional features discovered due tovarious factors such as the software and hardware used.
Through using a rapidprototyping design methodology, with constant iteration cycles to gain userfeedback continuously throughout the development of the product, the productevolved to include additional functionality allowing features such as: conversioncalculations, additional document access and database access through a customsearch engine to supplement the product’s functionality.
The final product wasfound to meet the requirements specified by the client, with an intuitiveinterface allowing users who were less comfortable with new technologies tograsp the functionality of the system easily. The product produced was createdwith a focus on allowing extensibility in the future as newer hardware andsoftware introduced since the project’s initial stages allowed furtherextensions to be implemented following the completion of this project.
